Letter from Board of Education President on Interim Superintendent

January 12, 2021

Dear Frontier Community,

The Frontier Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of C. Douglas Whelan, Ed. D. as Interim Superintendent of Schools.  Dr. Whelan previously served for 19 years as Superintendent of Starpoint Central School District before serving here at Frontier as Interim Superintendent in 2017.  Dr. Whelan will be able to build on the relationships he has already with many of you in the District, as well as foster new relationships, to assist the District as it continues to work to deliver a quality, well-rounded education to all Frontier students.

Dr. Whelan’s service will begin around January 25, 2021, and will continue until the Board appoints a permanent Superintendent of Schools.  The Board still intends to hire a Superintendent during the summer of 2021.  The Board is very excited to work with Dr. Whelan and is grateful he is here to assist our District during these unique times.

The Board thanks all Frontier administrators, teachers, support staff, nurses, parents, and all others who bring Frontier students the best instruction and services possible.

Davis Podkulski
Frontier CSD Board of Education, President
